Good luck. ...Read more
Take it easy: You can put a lot of strain on your neck with weightlifting and it can be a common cause of disc herniation. For weight lifting, try lowering weight, increasing reps and avoiding any exercises with increased flexion or extension of neck. For sit-ups, try doing crunches instead. The hands behind the head with situps can put a great deal of pressure on your neck and cause pain and injury. ...Read more

Intense pain in my right shoulder when I try to lift weights on an incline bench. I literally cannot lift any weight w/out intense pain. Rotator cuff?
Possibly!: If you can localize your pain ot the top (near ac joint) of the shoulder then consider ac joint as the source of pain.

Muscle strains / sprains do not show up on X-ray; X-rays are best to check for the position & shape of bones. Rehab therapy is generally best in these situations, to strengthen the back muscles without adding more strain. Heating pads can help. ...Read more
